In all aspects (comp., CCW, & Plinking). They are both great weapons but what REALLY make one better than the other?
<---------Same here....fits my hand very well, 100% reliable, "point and shoot ergonomics".....can't beat it IMHO.....red-rider said:XD hands down, you get a grip safety, cocking indicator, loaded chamber indicator, and for me, a grip angle closer to the familiar 1911. My XD40 has never failed.
that pretty much says it all right there!whompuss said:*snip*There are a lot of fine handguns, pick the one that fits your hand the best and gives you the best results on the range and you'll be happy.
Just my $0.02 worth, IMHO.
Yep, same here. I throwed my Glock in a drawer when I bought a XD and have not had it out since. XD for me. :--- :--- :---red-rider said:XD hands down, you get a grip safety, cocking indicator, loaded chamber indicator, and for me, a grip angle closer to the familiar 1911. My XD40 has never failed.
I got a good deal on a G 20, I was shopping for a ten, I had it one week and sold it. Couldnt hit the broadside of a proverbial barn with it. Odd grip angle for me.
Never owned an XD but know of it's excellent reputation. That's why I added at the end to pick the pistol that fits well in your hand and gives the desired results at the range and you'll be happy.xjedix said:whompuss- You speak a lot on the Glocks but how much experience do you have with XD's??? Pretty much everything you just said can be applied to XD's as well. I personally believe both Glocks and XD's are in the same class for function and reliability. The biggest difference that people comment on is grip angle. Take a peak at this article when you have a chance.

There is the arrogance of which I spoke. As Metallica said in a song, "arrogance and ignorance go hand in hand".Mike Barham said:I don't think Glock not including extraneous appendages like grip safeties and loaded chamber indicators is a sign of "arrogance." Rather, Glock assumes shooters are competent enough not to violate the rules of safe gunhandling. A competent shooter doesn't need a grip safety (he keeps his finger off the trigger until ready to fire) or a loaded chamber indicator (he knows the condition of his weapon). Safety lies between the ears, not between the hands.
Captain38 said:What am I talking about? Anybody who has ever spent even a modest amount of time on the firing line with shooters using versions of the 1911 have seen repeated failures to get a round downrange during a firing exercise because the "operator (as in 'Operator Error')" failed to remove either the manual safety or to properly depress the grip safety.
You guys leave the best firearm out of this (joke) , this is a thread about glock vs. Xds.Captain38 said:1911
